HTML and Coding

Underlying the majority of the World Wide Web is a form of computer code known as HyperText Markup Language, or HTML. This language was introduced to the world by British physicist Tim Berners-Lee in 1990. HTML is interpreted by Web browsers to produce layouts that humans can read. Web coders will need to be proficient not only in HTML but also common web technologies such as common gateway interface (CGI) coding, Javascript, and PHP. As with other trades, Web programming is a skill that gets better with training and practice. Prospective Web programmers can become proficient by learning at home or by taking courses. Regardless of the path that one takes to start a career in this field, they can benefit from the wealth of educational resources available online that explain the ins and outs of HTML and Web programming.
